“Let the beauty of what you love, be what you do”- Rumi
While we conglomerate with distinct ideas pertaining to beauty, we all do need to realise that not all of these ideas are holistic or devoid of disguised harm.
I, was invited over to be a part of the launch of Blossom K Aroma Magic Unisex Salon, at HSR Layout. This is one of a kind salon and the first green salon in Bangalore under the Blossom Kochhar brand. The Franchise Green Salons operate on the philosophy ‘responsible beauty solutions for consumers’ by Dr. Blossom Kochhar, pioneer Aromatherapist and an icon in the beauty industry.

Services provided: The services provided here are all aromatherapy based thus are very different from services provided at different salons. The facials, body massages, body wrap and body spas are created using products from the professional range of Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic which brings in the authentic touch of aromatherapy; this is because all our products are nature derived. Some of the services are specially curated for the Franchise Green Salons.
I, had a chance to get a one on one skin consultation with Dr. Blossom Kochhar, where she advised me, on how I could improve the quality of my skin.
Verdict : After an in depth talk, with the dynamic mother-daughter duo “Dr. Blossoms Kochhar & Samantha Kochhar”, it was very clear about their vision and why they have this unique concept up and going. While the world, had just realised the boons of aromatherapy & their uses, Dr. blossom had been clearly ahead of her times to visualise this.
This salon, is all about loving yourself responsibly, by causing minimum damage to yourself and your surroundings.
